This is a public place which has been well maintained and is interesting to explore. There are exhibits in the palace and there is no fee. Check it out.

“Pretty architecture and great paintings!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

This is a great place to see on a visit to Merida. There are wonderful paintings all throughout the building done by Merida natives. The Salon de Historia tells very interesting stories about the history of the Yucatan. It's a great representation of the colonial architecture of the city.
